An album full of VINTAGE 1966-1968 Music by the band that brought you the incredible 'HASHISH' on the legendary San Franciso Sampler 'Fifth Pipe Dream'. This is the first ever release of this killer psychedelic West Coast monster, that took many years to complete!!! West Coast Natural Gas started in 1965 in Seattle. In early 1967 they went to San Francisco to work for a local music manager named Matthew Katz. Katz was the original manager for Jefferson Airplane, Moby Grape and later also It's a Beautiful Day. He talked West Coast Natural Gas into signing a contract with him but being young and stupid, they didn't realize at the time that they had basically signed everything over to him. They went into the studio and recorded some original tunes, incl 'A Favor', 'Go Run And Play', 'The Jumping Frog', 'Hashish', 'Water Or Wine', 'Beyond This Place', and 'Two's A Pair'. In early 1968 the band broke up and went back to Seattle. Katz released the single 'Go Run And Play' b w/ 'A Favor' on his S.F. Sound label under the name West Coast Natural Gas. Later he released a compilation album -the first San Francisco Sound sampler- called 'Fifth Pipe Dream'. The four songs mentioned before, 'Water Or Wine', 'Hashish', 'Beyond This Place' and 'Two's A Pair' were the ones recorded by West Coast Natural Gas, though Kats presented these as by the band 'Indian Pudding & Pipe'. This superb release includes all the above mentioned songs, plus archival material taken from acetates. A big surprise here is that four recently unshelved and never before heard songs are included as well. All of these were recorded in 1966 at a local Seattle Recording Studio before the band moved to San Francisco. A Pinnacle of the West Coast Psychedelic Acid Scene.
